Hitler was a brilliantly shrewd politician that pandered to the 99% religious German population (66% Protestant, 33% Catholic).
His private writings and words show his true feelings about Christianity.
Why is that so hard to understand for you people?
Just because Hitler wasn't an exemplary Christian doesn't mean he wasn't a Christian. History is littered with examples of this.

All you're doing is illustrating that Hitler was a megalomaniac and crappy Christian assisted by many other bad Christians that led an entire country of "good" Christians to do terrible things, or sit by and do little or nothing to stop him.

The deity belief/morals supposedly instilled by that belief did them no good whatsoever.

HA !

Hitler was a lot like you atheists. He was born into a rigorous home, raised by religious parents, then turned his back on that religion and started idol ing himself.

Hitler was more than a terrible Christian. He wasn't a Christian at all. He hated Christianity and all that it represented.

He used the gullibility of the German people to advance his position in power. That's as close to being a Christian as he ever was.

He detested the meek and mild Christianity. Like any politician, he used Christianity to his advantage. He envisioned an entirely different type of Christianity.

Lemme ask you, how may of our current politicians do you think are dedicated Christians, and how many votes and support do you think they get from Christians who feel they are supporting a Christian?

Rather than turn his back, he embraced his religion as evidenced by his order to have millions of belt buckles emblazoned with his love and trust of God. Gott Mit Uns.......God is WITH US. You lose once again!!! ha ha

Most of them do, if not all.

Pandering to potential voters, lying to them, is what ejected officials do. It's what they've always done.

Hitler wasn't a Christian. If anything, he was a Darwinist.

"The adult Adolf Hitler was a rationalist and a materialist, who saw Christianity as a religion fit for slaves, and a rebellion against the natural law of selection and survival of the fittest."

"Raised a Catholic, Hitler had some respect for the 'great position' of that church, but became deeply hostile to its teachings."

"In office, Hitler sought to control the German Churches through Gleichschaltung and sought to eliminate Judaism by all means possible."

Glad to see you admit that people in power use the gullibility of the populous to advance their cause. Thats exactly what Stalin did. He had an entire population of religious sheep. What dictator worth his salt would not use these religiously gullible peoples to advance his cause and secure his power. Far from being an Atheists who murdered for religious reasons, Stalin murdered for political reasons and to remove anyone he thought stood in his way.

All one needs to know about Christianity can be found in word like "Sheep" "Flock" "The good shepherd" Gullible sheep, herded into the flock, and tended by the good shepherd, what a great resource for any would be dictator.

He is unusually incurious, abnormally unintelligent, amazingly inarticulate, fantastically uncultured, extraordinarily uneducated, and apparently quite proud of all these things.

Hitler's god was nature, Germany and himself.

I do insist on the certainty that sooner or later – once we hold power – Christianity will be overcome and the German Church established. Yes, the German church, without a Pope …....and Luther, if he could be with us, would give us his blessing.”(Adolf Hitler, Hitler’s speeches, edited by Prof. N.H. Baynes [oxford, 1942], pg. 369.)

Look half wit. I understand you being a christhole wanting to distance yourself from Hitler. Regardless of the select few quotes of his you ignore the ocean of quotes he gave defending Christianity, destroying Darwin's books, taking away free thinker's property and giving them to the church, championing his own take on Protestantism or as he called positive Christianity and I could go on and on with his actual actions supporting Christianity but I really don't need to.

You don't want to accept a self described lifelong Christian like him could do the bad things that he did so you need to comfort yourself by saying he wasn't a Christian.

It's okay that you are not strong enough to accept the truth.

Atheists in Power
State atheism in Albania was taken to an extreme during the totalitarian regime installed after World War II, when religions, identified as imports foreign to Albanian culture, were banned altogether. The Agrarian Reform Law of August 1945 nationalized most property of religious institutions, including the estates of monasteries, orders, and dioceses. Many clergy and believers were tried, tortured, and executed. All foreign Roman Catholic priests, monks, and nuns were expelled in 1946.
